Just to let everyone know how it ended up, I deleted the two tables and pasted them into a blank document. Then I went to the end of the third page, hit return, and pasted in the first table, then did the same for the second table at the end of the document.
Now the tables roll just fine. I think the first page of the document was disconnected from the other pages, and I added a small hidden disconnected text frame on the first page to provide a Chapter heading for the TOC. These could be the culprit, or who knows -- I'm just glad I've got the documents tamed. I really appreciate all the feedback you guys gave me. I've been at this for a year now, and feel like I've moved about an inch forward on the mile-long learning curve that is FrameMaker. And I am a pretty sharp person! I don't know if it's just because I'm working without an expert here, or if my brain just doesn't function in FM ways, but I am so impressed by and thankful for the body of knowledge you all to bring to bear to my problems. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
